CTRL+BREAK Hangs System If Running CHKDSK with BREAK=ON Line (96385)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0

This article was previously published under Q96385


If DoubleSpace installed and you press the CTRL+BREAK key combination when CHKDSK is calling DBLSPACE /CHKDSK, your system may stop responding (hang). This problem occurs only if you have the BREAK=ON command in your CONFIG.SYS file.


To work around this problem, either let CHKDSK run DBLSPACE /CHKDSK or remove the BREAK=ON command from your CONFIG.SYS file.
